|2002 Equator Events|
Since its inception in 2002, the Equator Initiative has hosted and supported a large number of events in support of community work to achieve the MDGs. These events have explored the community role in protecting the environment and raising incomes and provide a highly substantive backdrop for the many additional advocacy and outreach events that the Equator Initiative organizes each year. Each event has been documented on its own website. We invite you to learn more about these special activities and about the critical role communities play in poverty reduction and biodiversity conservation.
